User Testimonials AgilityYamdu
Likelihood to Recommend (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)
Scenarios where it works well: 1) Retros can be very well facilitated & notes/action items
can be captured against the sprint. 2) Product Owner can effectively track the story
progress with all the test-cases, design etc. 3) Being good scaling support, it provides good visibility
across multiple teams, programs and agile portfolios, providing a centralized
environment where all our stakeholders can easily work together regardless of location. 4) It provides easy tracking all of your epics,
stories, themes, defects, tasks, tests and issues 5) I like its intuitive UI as for moving stories
around, burning hours. 6) It allows top leadership to visualize
and report their strategic plans, giving all stakeholders the relevant data
that they need to stay dedicated to the project priorities. 7) It can be easily integrated with slack
so for few teams we used slack for collaboration Scenarios where it did not work well: 1) Test Management need improvement in
terms of tracking tests, team had hard time tracking regression test cases. 2) Version one comes with lot of features like
Rally but here we don’t get customizations which is there in Jira where from workflow
to issue everything can be customized based on your team/program/portfolio
requirements. 3) Lot of navigation to access basic
stuff. Example I want to go to bug attachment , there are lt of clicks &
navigation need to do which should be pretty straightforward I feel.

Even for a small business like mine, Yamdu really felt like a one-stop shop for everything. It's hard to find a comprehensive software for film/video productions, but Yamdu has everything we need. The only thing that really held us back was the cost, ultimately. If anything, I would love a storyboarding feature that let you set the time per shot and build out a sequence in pre-production. I used Storyboarder for this currently and it's very helpful, especially for music videos, to be able to build out a storyboard, set a music/audio track to it, then play it back in real time and see the pacing of the shoot.

Cons (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)
  • Although Agility supports customizations, they can be somewhat cumbersome to set up and maintain
  • The Analytics engine's user experience for digging into the data does not have the same feel as the rest of the system and, as a result, can be hard to work with

  • More specific financial management reports.
  • Creation of some instant messaging software for the team.

Support Rating (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)
VersionOne provides outstanding training. They have Product Owner training that I recommend every Product Owner attend. They have scrum master training and other agile training that was well worth the money paid because it made the teams more productive. And the support for the tool is incredible. These people live and breathe Agile and are evangelists and enthusiasts.

This is one of Yamdu's strongest points.

Alternatives Considered (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)
JIRA appears to be more extensible with the ability for Scrum, Kanban, bug/incident tracking, and the ability to customize dashboards. However, VersionOne's performance over the same teams is extremely fast in comparison and therefore allows users to be more productive over the same amount of time.

At the time, there really wasn't anything else like Yamdu. Especially as, in Celtx's case, at that time they weren't doing Excel/CSV exports of shot lists in the A/V format, something we required for what we were shooting. I understand that StudioBinder has increased its featureset the past few years, but Yamdu always felt like the most robust option and more familiar with the film/tv world.

Return on Investment (formerly XebiaLabs, CollabNet VersionOne, and Arxan)
  • It has made it easier to implement Agile processes. Since our team is fairly new to Agile, this has been extremely helpful.
  • Our organization is quickly growing, and V1 has made it easier for new hires to look at everything that our team has in the works.

  • Positive impact, centralized place with some good tools for film productions
  • Negative impact, not that flexible and as expected and strict pricing policy with little flexibility
